Caballo Cemetery
Sierra County, New Mexico

Lat: 3255'27"N, Lon: 10719'09"W

The little town of Caballo is located approximately 15 miles south of Truth or Consequences, NM on Hwy 187.

Contributed by Marilyn Poitras, Oct 24, 2001 [lavelle@zianet.com]. Total records = 51.

This is still an active cemetery, but with no sexton or phone. It is a typical "western" cemetery with rocky soil, wooden crosses and circles of stones. If you stop by the Caballo Store, they can give directions to the cemetery.

All visible graves have been listed but as with all old cemeteries, there are those unmarked graves. In 1938 the Caballo Dam was built and water began to cover the homes of the early settlers. They moved their homes to the foothills on the west side of the Rio Grand.

These records show all visible burial sites in the Caballo Cemetery, which were compiled on 18 Nov 1994 by the Sierra County Genealogical Society, then published in a book. I have transcribed from this book, after being given permission by the society, so it could be published on the internet.

Other books available regarding Sierra County records may be purchased by contacting: Sierra County Genealogical Society, c/o Truth or Consequences Public Library, Truth or Consequences, NM 8790l
